lined all along pennsylvania avenue. they followed the footsteps of jimmy carter and rose alyn cart who created the tradition of walking down pennsylvania avenue. they walked the entire way. president obama and the first lady got out of the vehicle twice. now, despite the partisan divide that has overcome washington in recent times, president obama sounded optimistic today as he called a nation to action. >> we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us at any time may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our nation, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> let's bring in our panel of van jones, former special adviser for the president. margaret hoover, and cornell belcher, a pollster for obama in 2012. sally, we haven't heard from you. you have heard a lot in washington. i wonder what you think of this speech and how it co
the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up to the white house. and jimmy carter was the first president back in 1977 who actually walked this route. last year, president obama as president bush did got out partway through and walked to the white house and we expect that's probably going to happen again. this parade will be about a mile and a half long, include all sorts of interesting floats and of course, fabulous marching bands from the u.s. military, some civilian ones as well. this all started back in 1801 with thomas jefferson had a little bit of a parade that was taking to the inauguration. 1909 with james madison is when the first official pred happened and i think as megyn pointed out to you yesterday, bret. perhaps the most infamous one was 1973 with richard nixon when he ordered the park service to spray all the trees with basically a form of bird be gone, it was called roost no more. and didn't want them on the parade goers, and the pidgeons ate it and they were falling on top of people because they were sick. >> megyn: more like live no more. >> live

. jimmy carter was actually the first to do that back in 1977. to give you an eye of the scope of the security here, we've got state troopers from around the country, including from the utah highway patrol. they were nice enough to share one of their patches with us. just past them, the alabama state highway patrol. there are officers from across the country here to make sure this goes off without a hitch. estimates, as matt said, somewhere between 500,000 and 700,000 people, that's according to homeland security who looks at things like restaurant, hotel reservations and charter buses to get to that number. that's an awful lot of people around this parade route as president obama makes his way down from the capitol back to the white house later this afternoon. guys? >> willie, you mentioned security. if you're anywhere near the parade route and you've gone through screening stations, you will not be allowed to have any aerosols, ammunition, which is an obvious, animals except for helper dogs, backpacks, bags, bicycles, no structures to hold signs, mace, pepper spray. laser poi
't that wonderful? host: it is nice to hear. thanks for the comments. jimmy carter had 80 years old greeting supporters. l.l., everyone -- hello, everyone. this is my first time taking my day off to see the whole thing from the beginning to the end. i've never had a chance to see. i have this chance to see president obama in 2009. that time the republican president was there but this time i do not see him. host: president george h. of the bush is recovering from hospitalization. they took the day off because of the illness of the elder george bush today. next up is a call from michael who is watching as a in queens, new york. caller: hello. i am calling from jersey city. i want to remind people that the remind us about is up to us to work together and change the policies. we need to make sure we got to change what we're going to do. i will be calling harry reid's office tomorrow to ask and to change the filibuster rule. we have to make the move. i agree. i understand ipoem. -- the poem. it was beautiful. >> you are on. welcome. caller: i just want to comment that i find it very revealing tha
to other locations on capitol hill. from harry truman through jimmy carter, it was always on the east front of the capital. moved by the congressional committee to the west front in 1985, which is where it remains today. kansas, independent line, good morning. caller: i think it is amazing that we all want to complain about every penny that is spent in washington, d.c., because of the inauguration. this is something special that happens every four years. surely, surely, people, you can understand. if you have a wedding, you do not spend that every year. you wait and you spend a fortune. the inauguration is very special to people, we should sit back and relax. it is a big event for our country. like you said, people of other nations do not do this on a regular basis. we do. the cost might not be so expensive if we did not love our guns so much and paid attention to the fact that security is what is costing the big money. host: thank you for the call. this is an etching of the reviewing stand of when president mckinley was sworn in, in front of the white house. the long tradition of having th
as they move into their second term. and i want to talk about that in a second. but i saw jimmy carter yesterday, who helped you an awful lot in your book. and he's been known to not be a joiner, to sometimes be a bit morose. he seemed to be in really good spirits. i don't know if you saw the images yesterday. but he seemed to be in really good spirits yesterday. >> and he was the senior president on the platform there, because george herbert walker bush wasn't there. and he also was elected the president of the united states. he can be charming. it's not in his nature, but he can do it. he plaid the role of senior sort of president yesterday and i think he probably enjoyed that. and it was, of course, a festive moment. >> remember, also, there was a lot in that speech that carter would like. president carter was the first american president to really make a push on the environment, on environmental reform, famously put solar panels on the white house, that ronald reagan later tore down. but jimmy carter's vision of government is getting a little bit more of a second chance, i think, w

to the president. we just saw 88-year-old jimmy carter arriving on the scene. former presidents are almost always in attendance at these events, but today, george herbert walker bush and his son, george w. bush are not in attendance. the elder mr. bush has recently been released from a month-long stay in the hospital due to a respiratory ailment and so both bush families announced that they would not be able to attend because of the poor health of the elder george bush. the president after taking the oath of office will deliver his second inaugural address. following that, kelly clarkson will be singing "my country 'tis of thee." and these are the supreme court justices being led in, led by chief justice of the united states john roberts jr. who delivered the oath in 2009. here is the first lady as she is coming in to the capitol. as we mentioned earlier, she's wearig a dress and a coat by the american designer thom browne. navy blue we are told. there's justice sotomayor. nominated to the supreme court by president obama. she will deliver the oath of office to the vice president. justice elena k
and secretary of state hillary clinton and former president jimmy carter and wife roslyn. we are just minutes away from the arrival of, of course, the vice president, jill biden, and the president and first lady and their family. it's exciting. it's electric. we've got great weather, especially compared to four years or so here, and i have to say before the program sort of settled in, i saw more collegiality on the platform in terms of members of congress, both democrats and republicans, commingling, glad handing each other, coming up to the front of the rail, if you will, looking at the crowd, taking pictures, if you will. now, if only we can bottle that for the rest of the time here in office. again, great to be back on this perch again. by the way, in all those inauguration facts that you could look up, the one i thought was kind of amazing, the platform behind me, 10,000 square feet at a cost of $1.2 million to hold about 1,600 vips. of course, all the members of congress, the justices, the cabinet, et cetera. so you can't have an inauguration without some kind of a stimulus program. back
